Health Insurance

In order to ensure that each international student has access to adequate health care services during their stay in United States, Maryville University requires that all undergraduate and graduate international students are covered by health insurance. You must either enroll in the Maryville University sponsored international student health insurance plan by filling out this application form or show proof of other comparable coverage to be able to waive out of the Maryville University plan.

The Maryville University sponsored international student health plan is underwritten by LeverMark Student Insurance Company. You may obtain more information about coverage, costs, benefits, exclusions, reductions and limitations on this page.  Health insurance coverage for your dependent spouse or children is not available under this plan. Contact the Office of International Student Success for more information on dependents.

IMPORTANT: IF YOU ALREADY HAVE HEALTH INSURANCE AND YOU DO NOT NEED THE UNIVERSITY SPONSORED PLAN, YOU MUST STILL TAKE ACTION TO DECLINE AND WAIVE THE INSURANCE BEFORE THE FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL.

If you plan to waive out of the Maryville University health insurance plan, you should:

  1. Complete the waiver process by printing, completing and signing the waiver form: 2017-2018 Insurance waiver request
  2. Submit the form to International Student Success together with the written proof of alternative insurance:
    1. A completed waiver form.
    2. A copy of your insurance card
    3. A copy of your policy, which must:
      1. Be written in English
